My self-summary
I've been described as fun, playful, and adventurous. I am a bit facetious and like to tease playfully. I would describe my sense of humor to be very quirky and sarcastic, and I like to make people laugh and share in their joy.

I tend to be very honest with people. I am a pretty energetic and passionate person, but certainly not all the time. Expression, knowledge, growth, and my relationships with people are some of the things that I value most.

I am a scientist and a dancer, which may be a bit of an odd combo, but I suppose I am an odd combo sort of guy. I have a very inquisitive and largely logic-driven mind, but I absolutely need my creative outlets. I enjoy learning about why and how things work, but revel in the freedom in movement. I'm a huge geek and have been known to marathon tv shows and video games for more than 12 consecutive hours. Also a fan of anime and fanfiction and such. Furthermore, I randomly dance and sing. A lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Finished school with a Food Science degree at the U of M

Continued working part-time as a research assistant (student job) in a proteins lab for about 8 months afterwards.

Danced with two professional dance companies since graduation as well: rhythm/tap-based and contemporary jazz.

Currently working at a bar and figuring shit out

I also play soccer, dungeons and dragons, and obviously video games
I’m really good at
Singing along to my favorite musicals.
Dancing in general. Love me some African or modern.
Consuming coffee and staying up late. Quite rare and valuable skills really.
Handstands and backflips.
Procrastinating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose that depends on my mood. I tend to have quite a bit of energy around people with the same energy or those that I'm really comfortable around. I can also be extraordinarily lazy and reserved if tired. I'm pretty shy in large groups of unknown people, but can chat one-on-one with most people pretty comfortably. Physically, people tend to comment on my arms, ass, and hair color.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've only seen like, one of the Star Wars movies. I think Ewan McGregor's voice is like sex poured onto hot waffles. I've only seen one septum piercing that I didn't hate. And that was on a porn st---IIII mean, some gentleman I passed on the street (well...actually this is up to 3 now but that doesn't sound nearly as good). I wear boxers, briefs, and boxer briefs. Not all at the same time.

I may have recently stirred a whiskey sour with an empty beer bottle...

I like to workout at home and stuff my face in between sets cuz I'm really good at working out

There are days that I try to be healthy. But then there are days where all I eat are pizza, whiskey-infused chocolate, and Skittles. Gotta keep it balanced
